The outdoor heaters were nice and warm, the service was great and we had a very enjoyable Sunday brunch.
We had a wonderful time. Exactly what we need to relax and enjoy the rest from our current COVID-19 times. As a front line worker. I have been so tired. My husband planned the day to bring a little joy and rest.
Excellent service! Seating was outdoors so it was a little chilly even with portable heaters.
This restaurant is one of our favorite places to enjoy a meal by the Sacramento River. The outdoor dining experience was great. With all of the COVID restrictions we wanted to enjoy a meal before any new restrictions. The staff and the food are excellent. On a sunny afternoon a pleasurable experience.
Scott's use to have a good menu with a variety of entrees. Their Wuhan Flu menu is very limited. The quality was good as was the flavor and the wait staff was above average.
We really like Scott’s for the seafood...the servers treated us like royalty.
Very disappointed in Scott’s. We had a reservation through Open Table and when we arrived they didn’t have a table available. Ten minutes after our reservation time they tried to seat us in an area petitioned off for a baby shower. They moved the baby shower to 1 big table (more than 10 people and tried to seat us next to the baby shower. They did not have anything else available and told us it would be at least another 30 minutes for another table. We are regulars at Scott’s and this was the worst experience we have had there.
Food was great!!!
Due to Covid-19, dinner was served on the outdoor patio which was covered and nicely set up for social distancing. The view of the river was excellent. The fire pits were great! The biggest drawback was that it was rather windy and fairly cold, and the food cooled quickly. However, the traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner was very tasty and the portions were generous. Service was prompt and our waiter was attentive and efficient. All in all, we appreciated the opportunity to dine out safely in a very nice restaurant. Scott's is to be commended for its safety precautions.
We booked our table when restaurants were still seating inside, but again we are eating outside, and that was fine. The wind did kick up by the time we got there at 3 pm, and my only recommendation would be that Scott's buy more portable heaters to move around the outside patio, which is a gorgeous setting right there on the river. So, outside of the fact that we were a bit chilly, everything else was perfect, as you would expect from Scott's. I had the turkey dinner, and every morsel from the turkey and gravy down to the cranberry sauce was absolutely delectable. My son had the salmon which was equally impressive. We love Scott's. BTW, they were doing a brisk trade in takeout. Do not hesitate to order that way. I'm sure it's wonderful.
Food was good, had the Thanksgiving dinner. They accommodated my food allergies without any problem. Sat outside with a nice breeze, felt safe.
It was really cold and windy Thanksgiving, which really made the experience a challenge. However. They did everything to accommodate our needs.
I always enjoy dining at Scott’s. I had a wonderful time celebrating my friends birthday.
We enjoyed celebrating our 30th anniversary at Scott's. The service was fantastic, as was the meal.
It was awesome. Very romantic with great ambiance.
Our waiter was outstanding and everything was perfect. A gentleman (I’m not sure who) was kind enough to bring one of the heaters over near our table. He must have seen us looking toward them longingly! We stayed a very long time and had a wonderful lunch visit.
I can’t wait to return
The atmosphere was very relaxing, the service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Dinner was served in a timely manner and our server, Dave or David, was very polite and accommodating. He made our dinner an amazing experience.
Great food, great scene! Service was a bit slow, but it worked out!
Service was excellent food was good but seating outside with cold weather make my soup congeal and my steak cold need more heaters at the patio
Great service! We had a great night.. the food was excellent complement to the chef’s.
Scott's on the river is our favorite place, excellent food and always friendly service.
We had a delightful time and our server was so nice and accommodating. We loved her!!
Great spot for seafood and delicious drinks! The ambiance is elegant, perfect for a date night.
Wonderful service and food! We were there on Friday night for Happy Hour for my birthday that had to be adjusted due to the rain. They made it work for social distancing and still celebrate. I appreciated their efforts so much, we went back on Sunday for dinner. Thank you Scott's Seafood for making a signature birthday special!
The menu and service was great
Food was great. Service was a little slow and servers did not seem to be all that into it.
Food was great, but they need more heaters in the outdoor dining area and the service was just okay. A lot of time in between the server checking on us and we waited about an hour for our food to come out.
The outdoor patio was set up very well. Plenty of tables that were set up ample distance from each other. Outdoor heaters and fireplaces placed around the patio.
Food was very good.. .. calamari, crab cakes, Caesar salads, fish and chips. Our server was excellent, made sure my husband's coffee was refilled without asking or waiting long. He also allowed us to linger and enjoy the afternoon. We had an enjoyable time.
Always good. Can always count on a great time at Scott's. Food,drink and service always above par. Enjoy during sunlight hours great views of the river.
Let’s all support this fabulous restaurant! Our dinners were delicious and the service was fantastic!
I had the special that was 2 tacos loaded with fabulous spicy shrimp, shreaded cabbage, sourcream sauce, guacamole and home made pico de gallo and chips. It was a huge serving and wonderful.
The staff was also wonderful.
Food was not great. Ordered filet mignon and scallops. Filet was so so, but scallops were great. The mashed potatoes were mediocre... standard boxed mashed potatoes. Expected better.
Service was okay but had to call server a couple of times.
Cocktail Margarita Mas Fina was outstanding.
Whatever shortcomings exist, the ambiance more than makes up for them. It is truly a beautiful place and we loved it.
The food is really excellent. We ate out on the porch and they had heaters and firepits which upped the ambience. The dinner was for a anniversary and it was really special.
The hostess was accommodating with our request to sit at the large rounded booth where we were isolated and felt safer. It was too cold to sit outside. The three of us ordered our favorite Pacific Rim salad with calamari, and it didn't disappoint. It was perfect. Our water glasses were refilled without asking. We were celebrating our birthdays and were treated to our dessert. We all ordered the chocolate decadent dessert to go. I shared it with my husband later, but I could have eaten the entire dessert myself! Even deconstructed, it was delicious.
We had a very relaxed and pleasant dining experience.
My husband and I shared our 1 year anniversary here and it was really nice
Stopped going here two years ago due to decline in quality, but they're back on point. Ribeye, Fillet, Lobster, Crab cakes, calamari all amazing
My husband and I have never been disappointed when we dine at Scott’s Seafood on the River. As cold weather is moving in, we were so happy with indoor dining again. Tables were spaced apart and shields between those with booths nearby. My husband’s kitchen sink bloody Mary was incredible and he was so impressed with crab stuffed olives and bacon and a colossal prawn garnish. We loved our entrées as well. Definitely going back soon.
5 stars!!!!! Service was excellent from start to finish. We enjoyed perfectly fried calamari and prawns for apps. The macadamia nut crusted halibut was cooked perfect. My wife loved the ahi. My son said his fish n chips were better then the ones he had a Phil’s in Moss landing. If your looking for a top notch meal with top notch service. Look no further. Scott’s is it!!!!’
The food was amazing, there was no wait time, and the servers were GREAT! Also, the cocktails were AWESOME!
